Ontinyent Moors and Christians Festival
22nd to 29th August 2017
Entertainment in Spain Ontinyent Moors & Christians

The Moors from Africa occupied much of Spain for many years until the Christian Monarchs began the re-conquest of their lands. Each town every year celebrates the dates when the Moors where defeated and their town once again becoming Christian.
Every year since 1860 the town of Ontinyent, in Valencia, commemorates the Christian conquest of the town from the Muslim troops.

 Ontinyent celebrates with festive high spirits, dance and music in this dramatised recreation of the Christian conquest of the town by Jaime I in the 13th century. The festivities take place at the end of August, and the whole town takes part on one or the other sides (in the role of either Moors or Christians) and re-enact key events such as the entry into the city, parades by both sides, and the reception of the troops by their embassies.
